OWH Sketch #102 & Happy New Year!

OWH Sketch 102 and my first card of the New Year:


The DPs I used are all from a new Glitz 6x6 pad I bought at my LSS, Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston, VA, on Friday. Glitz is a new paper company; there were several yummy 6x6 pads available and I chose one called "Vintage Blue" (hmmmm, wonder why I chose that one). A free pack of Glitz epoxy stickers came with every purchase -- very cool stickers! I used one that says "Adored"; I hope you can see it in the photo. I also used the Stampin' Up bird punch and added some dots with a Pearl Pen.
I always panic when I see little strips in a sketch, lol! I put a new blade in my paper trimmer and it seems to be behaving better. I was kinda going for a clean and simple vintage look; I think it's one of those cards that looks better in person! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a happy and healthy New Year!
